Let’s start with the benefits of everything in the title of this post!

No code needed!
Dry Brushing / Exfoliating with a Dry Brush
The mechanical action of dry brushing is excellent for exfoliating rough, dry skin. It also helps detoxify your skin by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph flow/drainage. Also, by unclogging pores, it’s easier for the body to sweat and eliminate toxins in your system. Dry skin brushing should be done daily for best results, or even twice a day if you like. Try incorporating it into your normal daily routine, such as doing your brushing before your morning shower, and then again after work. Avoid doing it too close to bedtime, as it might leave you feeling energized. I may need to start doing this around 5PM, did someone say energy?!
My favorite dry brushing benefit is encouraging blood circulation and cell regeneration. Both actions promote internal detoxification which can aid in weight loss, cellulite reduction, and the elimination of accumulated toxins. Pair this with one of Beauty Kitchen’s fantastic Sugar Scrubs and you’ll double the exfoliation power while brushing and replenish the moisture in your skin while doing it. I love doing this in the shower!
Wood Rolling with Oils
Wood Rolling relaxes the mind and body to reduce mental and physical tension. It also stimulates the organs and stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic drainage for improved overall health. I love to roll my legs, hips, and stomach with Smooth Skin Firming’s Bath and Body Detox Oil as well as Marianna Natural’s Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil and Beauty Kitchen’s Bye Bye Cellulite Oil. I alternate the oils and often also add the Detox Oil into my bath.
I add the oil to my skin and roll the wood brush over my legs, and areas that I want to work on. I do this in bed or on the floor of my bathroom while watching TV. I immediately see smoother skin doing this process, these things really work! I’ll be adding dry brushes and wood rollers to Beauty Kitchen’s Tools page soon, so check back in.
Keep in mind, wood therapy is an ongoing treatment, so the more you receive the treatment, the longer it will last, and the results will be more intense. On average, results last around three months after your last treatment, then tend to fade without further treatment. I definitely recommend buying these tools and doing it yourself. There are a lot of places you can go and have these treatments done, and if you can afford that go for it, but I prefer doing things myself. I can’t keep a schedule to save my life, let alone any appointments most days. We all know how busy I am!
For anyone who wants more information on the Marianna Skin & Hair Oils, check out my post about Skin Oils or shop for them here! Our oils have been featured in Deluxe Version Magazine and are used by many celebrities! Oil is essential when using any rolling tools. It helps the roller glide over and smooth the skin for a perfect finish. It’s also key which oil you use because different oils have different benefits. There are tons of online tutorials about how to properly roll your skin, and I always like to include some great usage and how to info here on the blog.
I can’t wait to start rolling with my new roller tonight, stay tuned for new stories on social! Be sure to follow @AskHeatherMariannaBlog for updates and blog post releases. Tag me in your roller pics!
